For Lever and Pedal Harp
Although I had never composed a tune with a Celtic twist, this piece is perhaps the closest I’ll ever come to writing a Celtic tune. When I heard of the passing of Steve Green, maker of Steen Harps, I wanted to create a composition that would honor his memory and celebrate the joyful life he lived. Throughout our friendship, Steve and his wife, Doris, lived deep in the mountains of West Virginia. I had never visited his home and workshop, but imagined it up in the hills, tucked away in the forest. Forest Green has a happy melody and it is full of fun. It will lift your spirits! Significant fingering is provided in the first few measures, and rather than cluttering each page with more finger notation, you can write it in as needed.
